On Sunday, we were out by Shark Island at Cape Lookout shoals and came upon what we thought was a bait pod. But it was a ball of 40 to 70 pound black drum. I threw a gotcha plug at them and immediately broke off. My 15 year old buddy, Tanner had one on that broke off. I threw a jig with a strip of fresh bluefish and immediately hooked up. This was on a 4000 sized Shimano Sedona with 14 pound test.
45 minutes later it was done. This was an awesome fight!!!

Sweet! A 71 was weighed in at island tackle last week. Not sure why it was kept but I applaud you for releasing yours back into the gene pool!
